The sentence as quoted from the Christian Science textbook...

Hong Kong Daily Press

The sentence as quoted from the Christian Science textbook reads: "The blood, heart, lungs, brain, etc., have nothing to do with life." But what Mrs. Eddy has actually written on page 151 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" is, "The blood, heart, lungs, brain, etc., have nothing to do with Life, God." The word "Life" here (spelled with a capital "L") is synonymous with God, in Christian Science.

This statement is in accord with the words of the Master: "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." Christian Science teaches that man is the image of God, as described in the first chapter of Genesis; that man is therefore born of the Spirit, and is purely spiritual. When Nicodemus came by night to the great Nazarene, he was told by him: "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. ... Ye must be born again."
